That old familiar crisp air feeling is starting to show its face …. Fall mini sessions are a hot commodity, and we are quickly working our way there! These sessions are the perfect blend of quality and convenience for all those busy bees out there in Central Indiana. Families with packed schedules will find these shorter sessions a blessing.

How is a mini session different from a full session?

So, what’s the big deal with these family sessions? Well, they are quick, budget-friendly photo shoots, perfectly suitable for capturing those fleeting moments in life. Whether it’s a family photo, a milestone event, or senior portraits, these sessions can be a great idea for you!

Family schedules can be crazy hectic, right? Trust me, I get it. These family fall minis are designed to provide you with fantastic family photos without demanding much of your time. Just a few minutes with your loved ones, and voila, you’ve got memories to cherish forever! These sessions are also ideal for capturing milestone events – first steps, first birthday, missing teeth …. I could go on and on! They are perfect for those who want beautiful, professional photos without investing in a full-length session.

For those teenagers who dread the thought of a long photoshoot, shorter sessions can be a lifesaver. Quick, efficient, and painless – the ideal solution to get those tween or even senior photos done. Not to mention, our sessions are just the ticket for those busy toddlers who can’t sit still. The brief nature of these sessions means we capture their energy and joy before their attention wanes.

The beauty of these sessions is that they require only a few moments of your time, yet deliver spectacular family portraits you’ll cherish forever. Minis are designed to capture the essence of your family, the bonds, and love, in a swift, no-fuss manner. Head to this link to browse some pictures that will give you some mini session photography tips!


Mini sessions will save you some money, as the time put into the actual shoot itself is less, which will likely result in less photos to edit. You can book a session to take place at any location – your home, a park … just like the full session, but it is a 30 minute session. This can be plenty of time for those little ones with very short attention spans or a grumpy teen that is only agreeing to a few photos!

So, if you’re based in Indianapolis or the surrounding Central Indiana region and looking for a quick, efficient way to capture life’s moments, consider Piper+Claire’s short and sweet sessions! The convenience and adaptability of these sessions make them hard to turn down for any photography need. You won’t be disappointed!

I also offer mini sessions that all take place on the same date at the same location. I offer these when the fall colors are bright, and again in the theme of Christmas sessions. I will send out information with the deets here soon …. sign up here if you want to be on the list!
